Nice Spats, Lad!

Heights Kenchi

In the late 19th and early 20th century, spats, a footwear accessory, stepped into the fashion scene. Spats were worn by both men and women, though less common among the latter. It was an accessory designed to protect shoes and socks from mud or rain, worn over the shoe and buttoned around the ankle. Spats were not only practical but stylish during the 1920s, made in white cloth or brown felt material, colors that match with practically everything.


Today, spats continue to be used among militants in various countries and industries such as chainsaw operators and welders for protection purposes. Nothing beats fashion that functions beyond style.
